That's not a lost pet, THIS is a lost pet! Manuela, a red-footed tortoise and beloved pet of the Almeida family of Rio de Janeiro, went missing in 1982 but she didn't go far: the family finally discovered her in a furniture-choked attic room having survived on termites for over 30 years.

Forget Jack Bauer's 24
there's a new agent in town that's dog-gone funnier - and he gets to
the point a lot quicker! His mission opens with "the following takes place
between 2:58PM and 3:00PM - events occur in dog years." Apparently a threat was issued against CTU (Canine Terrier Unit) that cats were
dumping chocolate into the water supply. It's now up to "Jack Bowwow" to
save the day --erhh, the next 2 minutes. . .

Having worked domestically and internationally as a director of marketing with Marriott Hotels for years, I can honestly say (perhaps with prejudice), this hotel chain outshines its competition when it comes to advertising. The Residence Inn,
one of their long-term-stay brands is continuing that tradition into
the 21st Century, with the introduction of "Dude," the
frequent-traveling giraffe.

Every once in a while the worlds of people and animals meet in a weird, wild and wonderful way. Such a scene recently occurred on a sunny street in Shanghai, China as a hard-working street food seller diligently prepared dough for her delicious mochi rice cakes, blissfully oblivious to the ominous buzzing of hundreds of swarming bees.

This story has that "Lassie Come Home" feel to it. Major storm! Pet gets loose! Heartbreak! Then a year-and-half later- a reunion like no other. This transpired when a family decided to replace their lost dog with a new pup -- only to find out their wayward pooch was waiting for them at point and time of purchase. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction!

Cetaceans don't explode very often but when they do, they make a whale of a mess. An 81-foot-long carcass of a Blue Whale that washed ashore in Trout River, Newfoundland is the latest ticking time bomb to have folks holding their breaths... and their noses. Here's what can we expect when Moby Dick meets his end with a bang and not a whimper.

A veterinary clinic in Marseille, France, was in an uproar when Chamallow came to live there. He was unwilling to remain captive as long as he could do something about it. And so something he did. The little escape artist managed to make his way out of every cage they tried on him. So they finally caught him in the act on video to understand just how he was getting out.

Many have wondered if the "Praying" Mantis was mistakenly misspelled, and that this very unique insect which
belongs to the "Mantidae" family should be referred to instead, as the
"Preying" Mantis.  And to that point, with some very intriguing
scientific research underway this week, it would seem that this
predatory critter is being equipped with something comparable to Google
Glass to get even more upfront and personal with its prey.
